Arsenal’s defence has been particularly porous this season, with Unai Emery failing to find a solid backline throughout his time at the club.
Ljungberg will surely need to sort Arsenal’s defence out if he is to have any chance to landing the job on a permanent basis.
The Swede, at least, has seen the problems which exist at the club after his first game in charge.
Arsenal drew 2-2 with Norwich City in a game where they looked dangerous going forward, but always were susceptible to conceding.
And Ljungberg said: “My players try to defend and you have different types of players in the squad.
“If players are not super quick it can be difficult but we put out a structure. At Norwich sometimes it became a sprint and we want to stop that.”
Going into the Norwich game Ljungberg had only had a minimal amount of time to work with his team on the training ground.
However, Gunners interim boss has now had a few more sessions, and will hope his side looks more structured on Thursday.
Arsenal are next in action against Brighton & Hove Albion, when they will be looking to pick up their first win in eight matches.
